Overdose -The Pride of Hungary returns!
Good news from central and eastern Europe. The Hungarian government has stood its ground against the IMF and EU and has refused to ditch its tax on the financial sector and impose further austerity on the long-suffering Hungarian people.
And the incredible Hungarian wonder horse Overdose is back, winning a Listed race in Bratislava on Sunday (see above) after a 15 months absence from the racetrack due to a serious foot injury.
Let’s hope ‘The Budapest Bullet’ can get to Paris in October, safe and sound for the Prix de L’Abbaye and right one of the great sporting wrongs.
And let's hope too that Hungarian government can continue to stand up to the pressure from the 'markets' and put the welfare of its own people before the interests of the international money men.
